UTILIZATION

The drivers are very unstable in Mac OS 10.6 / resulting in a lot of anxiety especially live ...
Very few updates alas ...
Software: Logic Studio, Live 8, Final Cut Pro
For my use, no problems with number of tracks (a lot of computer memory)
No latency issues with appropriate settings

GETTING STARTED

Very complicated installation instructions for particularly obscure ...
Saffire Control the driver is stupid enough in its design and unintuitive especially when we used to manipulate console hardware or software ... Why do it simple when you can make it complicated?!
No real compatibility issues.
Incomprehensible manual

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 1 year
I was previously a small M-Audio and have not tried other models ... I regret this purchase ... Another option would have cost more expensive (eg RME) but I had less anxiety visibly ...
The sound is rather good when there is no noise associated with the instability of the driver ... (I know still make them disappear quickly but hey ...)
What I criticize the most is the build quality truly shameful inability to fix the power supply (no screws do not work ...)
All sockets in rear jacks, plastic bad break when you touches the ...
Obviously this model has disappeared from the catalog shortly after my purchase ...
In short a scandal! Let us speak no more of Focusrite ...
